AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Touch of Chinatown

Attractive entrance area of a Chinese shop in Melbourne's Chinatown

Fragmented window
Etched in drifting spheres and lines
Teases the senses

Linking to:

The intricate ruby design on the window is eye-catching. r it offers us a hint of intrigue and compels us to follow the art inside the door. Which I outside and inside too...
